loading video for your media project a free media. russia and china veto the western and arab back to a resolution on syria with moscow criticizing the tax taking and unbalanced approach and denying that the realities on the ground. in egypt at least a dozen people are killed as anger at the authorities failure to prevent seventy four deaths at a football match on wednesday sparks country wide protests hundreds. and hundreds of thousands take to the streets in russia in both pro and anti-government rallies ahead of the march fourth presidential election.
i'm broadcasting live direct from our studios in central moscow this is r.t. glad to have you with us on saturday russia and china blocked a little the latest u.n. security council resolution on syria. saying that backing the rebels over the government could cause even more bloodshed but moscow says it remains determined to end of the syrian crisis by helping damascus implement democratic reforms russia's foreign minister sergey lavrov is due to visit the country for talks next week or he's more important i have been following the diplomatic battle in new york. tempers are still flaring because as we've been reporting this should be surprise that the security council did not reach a consensus on the draft resolution on syria yet western countries still pushed for a vote and russia warned from the very beginning that if the draft was not a did not address some of russia's concerns it would veto and that's exactly what happened now let's talk about these concerns because moscow said it just requested
some simple amendments would be made to the draft text that would have made the resolution a little bit more balance for example the draft resolution different and the syrian government withdraw its all of its forces from the cities and towns and seize all violence but russian officials want to document the draft resolution to also demand that the armed opposition groups stop participating in violence and retreat back from any cities or towns where it may have occupied the chemical as called a draft text that was presented saturday morning to one side with a list of demands being made on the assad government but no note of armed opposition groups operating in syria now while addressing security council saturday russian envoy to the u.n. fratelli churkin said the security council was not created just for the sake of taking sides or interfering in a civil war of sovereign countries he also accused some some countries of
sponsoring a campaign of regime change in syria those who are pushing for this resolution to be adopted don't you sleep with them still you could put in some influential members of the international community including those sitting around this table from the very beginning of the syrian crisis demanding opportunities look a little settlement but i couldn't call regime change stirring up the opposition against the authorities and north because it's a thing to encourage and feed on the methods of struggle the draft resolution put to the vote does not adequately reflect the real situation in syria and since unbalanced to go to the syrian sides it doesn't take into account the. proposals look as well as withdrawing syrian armed forces from the cities this should be an ins to attacks by own groups own state institutions and neighborhoods with a low balance you know when the signal is now the u.s. delegation could not help but showing its frustration and anger when participating in the meeting saturday morning be heard and use some language that's normally not heard on in these diplomatic settings like disgusted in shame the united states is
disgusted that a couple members of this council continue to prevent us from fulfilling our sole purpose here addressing an ever deepening crisis in syria and a growing threat to regional peace and security in the meantime the russian foreign minister sergei lavrov is heading to damascus on tuesday to meet with syrian president bashar al assad russia has been very vocal in trying to get host sides participating in the conflict in syria to come to the table and start speaking to one another and. using some type of dialogue instead of violence to come to a peaceful approach so of course we will stay on the story and see how it evolves and works out. and as diplomats battle it out at the u.n. thousands of demonstrators have gathered in damascus in support of president bashar assad the crowds also praised the decision by russia and china while western calls
for regime change in syria but rick ross our from the stop nato group told r.t. that although moscow and beijing value not to allow u.n. sanction for intervention in syria there's a chance the country may still be bombed from outside. what i fear is we may be see a replication of what happened in one thousand nine hundred ninety when the united states and its nato allies launched a seventy eight day bombing campaign against yugoslavia having failed to enlist chinese and russian support for un resolution against not only here but saw the hoping of course that the resolute stand today and the principled stand taking the taken by russia and china against a resolution that we have to remember was sponsored by morocco and co-sponsored by a very interesting group of people they include the nato quality of the world the united states britain france and germany along with portugal to include all six members of the draw cooperation council that is the monarchies and camera in the persian gulf this is not a representative group of nations of course in the united nations of the world it's
a very select one that's largely the same for the first a comparable resolution one thousand seven hundred three against libya last year you know armed uprising of the sort of burn in syria could have occurred as in libya earlier cause of those a lot of the thirteen years ago without the understanding by those in gauging the armed uprising that they would be supported by forces outside the country. more than two hundred people were reportedly killed by security forces in the syrian city of homes just ahead of the vote at the u.n. security council the government denies the assaults calling the reports a hysterical campaign of incitement by armed groups the editor of the syria tribune dr ali mohamed says information supplied by the opposition shouldn't be taken at face value. but i mean they were not believing the syrian army waited ten months and then just the night before the u.n. security council meeting it decided to start bombarding homes this too which in
concert been difficult for the syrian. regime supporters for such a long time and i don't see why the army would choose such critical timing just start it's a vicious crackdown and the strike it's the out of only cleans and just two weeks ago we had the arab league observers who could have gone there and investigate it but unfortunately they were pulled out for a little good reason and therefore there are only claims from this. opposite claims from their side we cannot treat it what what's going on but i don't think that the army wants really it's it's not like the syrian army this is number one and claims like that happened before in fact in just a short war in there and the opposition was not able to prove any of these claims over the past ten months police in egypt have again fired rubber bullets and tear gas to force a crowd of a rock throwing protesters away from the interior ministry building in cairo the
clashes between security forces and the demonstrators have been raging for four days now and have left a dozen people dead and thousands injured activists have been venting their anger over the military rulers failure to prevent an outbreak of violence at a football match on wednesday that left seventy four day our correspondent mary from africa has more from cairo. things have been extremely devastating and terribly kilty clearly these are the last two days and also very tragic the code so huge that massacre only one state when seventy four people died in a stump speech at one of the city's football stadiums has become by itself the deadliest incidences were barak ousted last february but it's also triggered a new wave of clashes between the police the army and demonstrators that have actually become something common seen here in the capital cairo and everywhere throughout egypt the fact is people have been very quick to use the import site incident to use local sources especially the interior ministry of doing nothing of
the allowing this to happen allowing these dassault inefficiency and actually only showed over instigating these trials in order to preserve the situation of instability in the country in order to ensure that just to follow somehow i think also tearing through all the generals from the supreme council of the armed forces they took power from the barak last february and since then demonstrations actually have never told shortly after this happened on wednesday the whole school football fans have come to live bullets nothing to the minister here in the central pa who just walked away from here seeking for justice and calling for a me did transition of power from the military to civil the situation is until early presidential elections and since then twelve people have been killed in the last four days and twenty five hundred dollars have been injured who think that it's a terrible dissolve so i have to say i hope you can see the pictures right now as
you can imagine. while masood street is a narrow street is one of the streets they didn't towards the building ofa the interior ministry here in hollywood the queen but many many people there chanting and to miter slogans from time to time police has been firing tear gas at the. times doesn't even show it's been able to speak to several people though let's listen to what they have to say about what was going on when it's going to stop people not just because the conditions didn't she to. the concert the good guys are unbelievably effects people people might die and that they suffocate each day to turn everything today it turns out. not to light the fire and they do she told me. that the chinese the seventy seven year old china it's over your new day it's more than enough what they're doing to the protestors and then they're doing to the interests of the country and the children must be. well as you can see
a situation is very volatile here in cairo and actually in several all the cities throughout egypt but we can also can talk. about several months as well following point same incident the figures people from the administration all of this to do have been detained and they're in custody right now is that while the investigation is ongoing and also taking protesters to mons just recently the supreme carlson of the armed forces advisory has also called for early presidential elections in the country. are trees where if a national reporting for us there now still ahead on our t.v. a change of heart once a harsh critic of the kremlin he now says he was wrong. but there's very few people who would say as many who are these are. going to do what. he wants to blame for the media put in for the death of his son alexander litvinenko but now the former
f.s.b. officers father has changed his mind and offers his own theory to explain what happened. last americas anti-corporate protesters are effective in a doner raid from the park vevo occupied sense of early october. in russia over two hundred thousand people across the cunt. they have braved the freezing temperatures to voice their political views ahead of march fourth prevent presidential vote excuse me two of the largest rallies took place in moscow where both supporters and opponents of the bloody matter putin took to the streets for the opposition it was the third and one of the largest gathering since parliamentary elections two months ago which they claim were rigged political analyst dimitri babich however says your split is fueled by the mass media and is not deeply rooted. it's mostly just emotions fueled by the media some people were obviously irritated seeing the same two faces on television and
maybe too much in the last few months especially some people were terrified the way they saw that position and its slogans and when they felt the hand of the west behind it so it's mostly media driven there is no real cost struggle behind it there are poor people and reach people in both radius there are people all kinds of ethnic groups in both race so right now i think it's mostly a positive effect because it's sort of wakes up the government to the needs of the people so until now the consequences might of more stability i hope it will continue in that wait if there is a real split in society of course it's not going to be good for the country author and researcher says the west is funding the russian opposition to minimize the country's influence on the world stage during a critical time. it's documentable from the records of the national endowment for democracy which is
a washington government financed to go it's all over the place in russia their financing activists in. several different cities in russia i think really their expectation is to create as much internal unrest in russia as possible to distract the prospective new putin presidency at a time when russia is going to face challenges with the missile defense with the destabilization of the assad regime in syria the attempt to create regime change in iran and throughout the middle east and you raise or to try to divert any russian any incoming russian government from dealing with these crises they're trying to do the same template they used in ukraine with the orange revolution in georgia to bring saakashvili into power as a pro president in that country and i don't think it will work in russia i whatever mistakes the. tenure has brought with it whatever discontent is i think there are
a lot of things that have significantly improved over the last years since the time of the yeltsin era. but that that really isn't the point the point is us interference in internal russian election affairs is something that ought not to be tolerated and it's quite right not to tolerate it. well you can get more on this and other stories online twenty four hours a day at r.t. dot com here's a glimpse of what is waiting for you there right now. from tragedy to treasure hunt thousands of works of art are up for grabs aboard the stricken luxury liner costa concordia including jewels and antiques cross. some gym lessons with michelle obama who is living up to her reputation as one of america's most vigorous advocates of a healthy lifestyle and get that full story and much more at our t.v. dot com. iran says it will not give in to international pressure pressure and abandon its nuclear program even if it's banned from selling
a single barrel of oil it's tehran's response to this week's approval by the u.s. senate committee of a package of new sweeping sanctions against the islamic state but the bill has yet to pass through congress america's initiative targeting tehran's nuclear program follows the e.u. adopting a total embargo on iranian oil which is due to come into force in july we islamic republic in turn has repeatedly said it will stop all crude supplies to some european countries before summer to run maintains its atomic ambitions are purely peaceful and seeks to prove it by cooperating more closely with the u.n. nuclear watchdog a team of i.a.e.a. inspectors visited iran this week and plans to return later in february political analyst. says keeping pressure on iran is a key issue in the u.s. election campaign. with american election especially if we go into the election they want to put
a lot of pressure on iran. obama administration. lobbyist a group inside the united states but i think they want to squeeze the pressure on iran they want to. america law. community and i think what we have seen some you. talk peanut of damage against your brand. i think american trying. to go to the extreme by trying to destroy. economy they've taken into consideration that iran is going through election parliamentary election probably the thing this is going to backfire in terms of the population of iran again. i think they go on very far in this in this because this is kind of an implication for the world economy especially if this escalate to him.
